Stories matter more than ever as we process the uncertainty of today's world.  

The Wildling empowers young voices and listeners through the art of storytelling. Since 2018, we've witnessed kids enter our spaces unsure, leave our Story Jams with newfound confidence and connection to themselves and each other.

Will you help us continue to provide opportunities for kids from every corner of the Twin Cities? Your support will allow us to:

  • Offer trainings for educators
  • Employ local teaching artists and coaches
  • Expand culturally relevant programming
  • Create future workshops and Story Booth opportunities
  • Provide scholarships 

When you share from your heart, the world leans in and listens.

The Wildling improves the well-being of kids and teens through innovative programs that emphasize creative voice, individual growth, and truthful expression. We celebrate all learners. We assure young people they are not alone. During the pandemic, we:

  • Rolled out a distance curriculum, partnered with teachers and after-school programs, and published our signature.                                   Jambooks (story creation workbooks.)
  • With filmmaker Maribeth Romslo, we built The Wildling Story Booth, a fun and engaging platform on our website                                           for youth to share and record their stories from ANYWHERE. Stay tuned for our first showcase.
  • Summer 2021 brought us back to in-person learning, new ideas, and record attendance! Our Brown but BLACK                                         Voices workshop was a celebration of Black girl individualism, and we can't wait to do it again! 

Please consider making a donation to The Wildling so we can continue to build a strong foundation for our youth and remind them that their stories—and their lives—are important.

Thank you for your support!
